FY2021 English Language Fellow and Specialist Program

The Office of English Language Programs of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs announces an open competition for proposals to advance the Bureau’s objectives through support of academic exchanges that will improve English teaching capacity around the world and increase mutual understanding


between the people of the United States and those of other countries through the physical or virtual exchanges of U. S. English language educators to educational institutions in all world regionsThe English Language (EL) Fellow and Specialist Programs build bridges of mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries by placing U. S. English language educators in educational institutions abroad.

The EL Fellow and Specialist Programs send talented, highly qualified U. S. citizens in the area of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or a closely related field for approximately ten-month Fellow exchanges or short-term (two weeks or more) Specialist assignments at educational institutions in all regions of the world.

Both programs offer virtual exchanges, with some modification to the duration of the program and benefits to the exchange participants.

Through U. S. embassy-designated projects, EL Fellows and Specialists share their expertise, build English teaching capacity abroad, hone their skills, and gain international experience.

Upon returning to the United States, they share their experiences and acquired knowledge with their communities and professional colleagues.

Projects are carried out with host-country ministries of education, universities, teacher-training institutions, NGOs, binational centers, and other English language teaching institutions.

The EL Fellow and Specialist Programs allow students and teachers at host institutions to benefit from the U. S. participants’ knowledge and perspectives on pedagogical issues and gain a better understanding of U. S. culture and values, representative government, free enterprise, and the rule of law.

EL Fellows and Specialists provide foreign educators, professionals, and students with the communication skills they need to participate in the global economy and to improve their access to accurate information and U. S. perspectives on a broad variety of issues.
